PRAYER FOR DIRECTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I come boldly before Your throne of grace asking for divine directions, instructions and guidance concerning ___________________________.
Father, I trust not in my own knowledge or wisdom concerning ______________, and I lean not to my own understanding. I realize that my knowledge without You is empty, and my understanding without You is vain. I, therefore, choose to rather, acknowledge You, O Lord, concerning this (these) matter(s). For Your Word tells us that if we acknowledge You in all our ways, You will direct our path. So as I acknowledge You in this (these) situation(s), I thank You for directing me and leading me in Your path.
I thank You that Jesus dwells within me in the person of the Holy Spirit. You said that in Jesus’ name, You will send the Holy Spirit, and He shall lead and guide us to all truth. So I thank You for the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit to Your truth, guidance, and direction concerning this (these) matter(s).
I thank You Father that Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path, and I praise You for lighting my way. You said in Your Word that You would guide me with Your eye and Your Spirit, so Father, I submit myself unto You, as You lead, guide, and direct me by Your all-seeing eye and Your ever-knowing Spirit.
Father, Your Word says that the steps of a good man are ordered by You. I know that I am not righteous or good in my own works or deeds, but You have made me righteous through the blood of Jesus. Therefore, I thank You for divinely ordering my every step concerning _____________.
Father, You said that Your sheep know Your voice, and a stranger they will not follow. I thank You for helping me to ignore the voice of the stranger (Satan), and for helping me to clearly and distinctively hear Your voice (the Great Shepherd) for instructions and directions in this (these) situation (situations); for I know that following Your voice leads to life, liberty, and peace; whereas following the voice of the enemy leads to death, bondage and confusion. So, Father, I refuse to follow the voice of the stranger, and I choose to follow only the voice of my Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
By the authority of the name of Jesus Christ, I bind the spirit of deception and every other satanic spirit that would attempt to deceive me or lead me down the wrong path. I cast down every spirit of confusion, and I pull down every stronghold of fear. You have not given me a spirit of fear (or confusion), but a spirit of power, and of love, and a sound mind.
Father, thank You for divine direction, instructions, and guidance concerning this (these) matter(s). Now, Father, I cast all my anxieties, worries, and cares concerning _________________ upon You; and I thank You for sustaining me with Your answers. As I have committed this(these) situation(s) unto You, I thank You for your clear-cut directions. In the name of Jesus Christ, I Pray, AMEN!
